Custom Bergen Linen RFID tags

Bergen Linen, a commercial linen provider, will begin a new project – introducing RFID technology.

In the fall of 2018, Bergen Linen’s team embarked on a massive new program- installing RFID technology into their inventory. Over the next several months, tens of thousands of apparel and table linens will have a unique RFID chip sewn in to facilitate tracking and inventory. The linen service provider will be making a significant investment in hardware, software and labor to complete this ambitious project.

During the transition, linen service will not be interrupted. The project is phasing in terms in such a manner as to ensure no disruption to production. The IT team at Bergen Linen has developed a proprietary hardware and software implementation strategy that will make sure that clients receive credit for every piece returned to inventory – impervious to human error in counting or assigning of inventory.

While a bit time consuming, RFID is a win-win for everyone involved. These informative tags provide real-time inventory and tracking data throughout Bergen Linen’s facility. The tags will also help to control ever increasing labor costs over the coming years.

RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. They are small devices that will be sewn onto each linen; Bergen Linen will be using Fujitsu chips. They are very much like a label that emits a unique twenty-four-character identification code, which is read by antennas distributed throughout Bergen Linen’s facility.

Bergen Linen considers introducing the latest technology as a responsibility to their customers. They are always looking for new ways to provide the customers in fabric care and customer service.
